Q&A with Dan Witters, one of our Keynote Speakers for the 2016 WWCMA Annual Conference

Posted By Melissa Matheson, Tuesday, August 2, 2016

You’ll have to attend the Worksite Wellness Council of Massachusetts’ annual conference to find out what Dan Witters, research director of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, will have to say in his keynote speech.

But you can get a sense of this influential wellbeing industry figure in a video interview he did last week with Michael Prager, an author, speaker, and wellbeing coach who is also a friend of the Worksite Wellness Council. Among the topics Witters covers:

            * The economic rationale for wellbeing efforts.

            * What to do about work associates who just won’t join in.

            * The link between Bono and Arianna Huffington.


The conference — Employee Wellbeing: Shifting the Focus — is Sept. 20 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. For information on attending, click here. To sign up as an exhibitor or sponsor, please click here.
